Raise For Beaver Dam’s Next Mayor Voted Down

(Beaver Dam) An effort by Beaver Dam Mayor Becky Glewen to raise the salary of the city’s next mayor failed to get the votes needed for passage Monday night. The salary for the mayor elected in April of next year would have increased by $7000 to $67-thousand dollars, followed by a one-percent hike in each of the following two years. By the end of the mayor’s next three-year term the salary would have been $68,347. Wording in the ordinance would have decreased the salary to $20-thousand dollars if officials decide to restructure to a city administrator form of government and reduce the mayor’s position to part-time. The last mayoral raise occurred in April of 2014 when it went from $55-thousand to $60-thosuand dollars.
